Is Fred Thompson Dropping out following South Carolina Loss

Based upon Senator Thompson speech in South Carolina moments ago,

it appears that he is dropping out of the presidential race.  He

is going through his thank yous from not only his South Carolina

staff but his national staff as well.  We are anticipating him

to drop out here. Senator Thompson received 13% of the vote with 13%

reporting. Thompson did not state his concession or drop out when his

speech ended. This is somewhat confusing from our perspective.

Thompson stated earlier that South Carolina was a must win for him.
